As for Europe not ready for war, that's a joke considering no country (well except best korea maybe) has a population ready for a instant full-scale war.

Moreover i am pretty sure that british or french armies don't have one year without foreign operation since 2001 or even since 1995....

A Korean earth, dream of the Kin dinasty since their rise.

It's an impossible dream unless the EU wants to become an actual federation, that is, a country. Because to make your army part of some larger "EU army" would basically be a surrender of your foreign policy.

NATO works because there are countries with armies that are in NATO that can participate or not as they see fit, not some literal "NATO army."

Another problem with the EU army would be that it'd require dragging Polish, German, Czech, etc resources into British and French wars. The UK and France have done more fighting in the last decade than anyone else in Europe, and they should not be subsidized by other EU members.

Sorry, I didn't found it in English.

But I'll translate some parts.
Jean Claude Juncker clearly said that an horde of chickesns can fight better than EU armies nowadays.
What he wants is a much better cooperation between EU members. He wants to show how the EU can be serious when they want to protect their Union.
etc etc

Do you think this will work as planned?

Brits will sabotage any initiative about EU joint forces.

What Europe made of it's military after the Cold War is a bloody joke.
